Are you kidding me? What rock have you been living under?? This has been going on for years! Quit b******* about it and pony up the $$$$ if you really want to go. It's 2010 people. It's not personal, it's business. Weezer is a business too believe it or not. That's the reality of the world in which we live!! Get an AMEX card and shut the f*** up!!!

You're missing my point. I didn't say I agree with the process, I just said that's the reality of the situation. People are in business to make money. Period!!! If you don't agree with that, than stay home and boycott Weezer if that makes you feel better about yourself. I just saw Weezer on DirecTv basically doing a 20 minute infomercial for Axe body spray. Do you think they're doing that for their health?!! Weezer doesn't owe you a thing!! They owe it to themselves to make a living and provide for themselves and their families. I don't fault them for that. What do you want, Amex or Weezer to pay you to come see the show??? That's not how it works.
lol @ SFTBH question. ULTIMATE BURN.
Anyway, here's my take on this aggravating situation, and I may be completely wrong. First off, I highly, highly doubt ticketmaster failed to allocate tickets properly. Presales sold out, which means they stopped selling them after they hit a limit. For the people who have never been to roseland ballroom, this place is not big. At all. It's entirely standing room, and it's pretty damn small for Weezer, considering not only 2 years ago they played madison square garden.
I agree that scalpers are scum of the earth, at least the ones who buy dozens of tickets.
HERE IS THE KICKER: Everybody seems to be failing to understand that NOT ALL WEEZER FANS ARE ON AN INTERNET COMMUNITY. Thousands of people tried to buy these tickets, not just the 100 or so found here and on a6. Again, picture the entire tri-state area, picture the amount of weezer fans in said tri-state area, and add it together with tiny venue.
Now, it is a bit odd that nobody was able to get tickets, but I don't see it being completely out of the question. I have seen weezer 15 times, and a few of those times I had to cough up the money on ebay or later on stubhub because I just couldn't get tickets within the first few seconds.
I feel awful for everybody, and I'm completely bummed about not meeting people.
What a shocker!! Someone in America trying to turn a profit during a recession. Grow up!
